From the moment we arrived the staff made us very welcome. Even my mum who is unsteady on her feet was treated very well. We felt very safe at all times and the driver was very knowledgable and answered any questions. We would do this tour again.

We had been to Dubai before so were looking for something a little different as we had already done all the regular stuff and this fitted the bill perfectly. It is a great way to see some of the iconic sites of Dubai from the water. The boat trip itself is heaps of fun and the opportunity to have your... More

My husband and I took the 90 minute tour through Dubai Marina. The boat cruises pretty fast; that was fun! They have plenty of photo ops. The only recommendation I'd make to the company would be to talk louder/get a microphone as it was hard to hear at times. A little pricey, but worth it. The provided a free water... More

We booked the 90 minute tour to Burj Al Arab and around the Atlantis. The boat zips through the water and bounces you with it. It was so much fun. This is not recommended for children or people with medial problems since you get bounced around a lot. The tour guide stopped for photos in front of the Burj Al... More

I didn't (couldn't) prebook, so just turned up on spec. Luckily, I managed to be the 11th man on the next 90-minute tour. We soon headed out into the deep blue, circling the Palm Jumeirah and making various short stops for photos and short facts about what we were looking at. Sights included the Atlantis, the modest summer homes for... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
